“And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you” 1 Thessalonians 3:12, ESV.
This weekend, you are seeing family that I haven’t seen in a while. I’m sure you didn’t want to leave. You didn’t want them to go. That’s how much of a blessing they are to you. You laughed and talked, and it is such a blessing to be around the people that you love.
In this holiday season, you will realize just how much you love and appreciate the people God has put into your life. Count it a blessing to have the family and friends that you have in this hour. Treasure and appreciate it deeply. If you have any issues or divisions with those you care about, let God’s healing be. Let love be. Amid everything happening around us, you notice in times like these what really matters.
Prayer: Father, thank You for speaking to me. What a precious time this is, and I appreciate it even now more than I ever have. I am overjoyed to have family and friends to love. Help me always to count my blessings. With everyone I know, help me to let love be. This is what really matters. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
Study: John 13:34-35, Ephesians 4:32, 1 Peter 4:8, 1 John 4:7-8
